Mask Wearing Recommended

Face masks are recommended 

Face masks will continue to be required in indoor instructional settings through May 20. Masks are not required in most other indoor settings beginning Monday, March 21. However, wearing a mask indoors will continue to be recommended. Masks are not required outdoors, as long as a six-foot physical distance between persons can be maintained. SSU encourages you to carry a mask at all times and to mask up when in crowded spaces. Should you forget your mask or need an acceptable mask, you can pick one up at the Seawolf Service Center or the Student Center during their business hours.

We are pleased to be able to provide N95 masks to students and employees. Students can stop by the Seawolf Service Center during business hours to pick up an N95 mask. Employees must complete this online form in order to be eligible to receive an N95 supplied by SSU. Once employees have completed the form and agreed to the terms of the program, they are able to pick-up an N95 at the Seawolf Service Center during business hours. Medical procedure masks are available at the Student Center, University Library, and in the hallway outside the Seawolf Service Center.

When worn correctly the face mask should cover your nose and mouth completely. The mask should not fit loosely around the edges and should not be worn under your nose and chin.

Suitable types of masks are surgical, multi-layer cloth, and N95.  Bandanas, gaiters, or vented masks are not suitable.
